How much is clean coal supposed to reduce the carbon output of a power plant?

    The clean coal approach turns coal into a gas similar to natural gas, with near-zero emissions of toxic material and chemicals that form smog, and about a third less coal than regular coal-fired power plants to produce an equal amount of energy. This means about a third lower greenhouse gases. Additional “sequestering” technology is feasible with these gasification plants, pumping carbon dioxide back into the ground to keep it out of atmosphere. A gasification power plant with sequestration would have around two-thirds lower greenhouse gases than a conventional coal-fired generating station.
